residents nd these include transplanted Londoner of Irai origin Detective Constable Mina Arian Along with Isla Mina was the character that made the novel work for me nd it was One Last Kiss a great idea for theuthor to have n outsider involved in the investigation who did not bring ll of that local history long with her However when it seems that there is nother murderer on the loose the now Detective Superintendant Eric Bell is reluctant to consider ny links with the previous case that he solved Was nother person involved in the original murders Is there No One Needs To Know a copycat

does great job with this one Highly recommended to those who enjoy good police proceduralinvestigation I was hoping for from this The premise is good hook I love bit of serial murder in small town Yet I guessed the ending within the first few chapters it was obvious nd very clearly signposted After that it was just watching everyone in the multiple POVs bumble their way to the same conclusion You only really need to read the first nd last 10% if you read it t llARC via Netgalley It started with the bodiesWell yes indeed it did nd the opening salvo from Emma Kavanagh in The Killer On The Wall made me ctually shiver the scene setting itself would have been enough but then there were BODIES And I pretty much continued to shiver my way through the rest of the novel Between You and Me (The Harrisons, as wellnd not just because of Cinderella and the Ghost (The Cursed Princes, all the deathnd desolationBasically The Killer on the Wall is n utterly riveting psychological thriller with Ms Kavanagh s trademark divisive yet endlessly compelling characters ll living through nightmare the likes of which is lmost unimaginable If you live in small community nd you know everyone what do you do when there is killer on the loose Even so when you thought it was ll behind you nd there had been many years of relative uiet nd recuperationThat is the situation the uthor throws her group into ll set gainst hau. The first body comes s shockThe second brings horrorThe third signals the beginning of nightmareWhen fifteen year old Isla Bell finds three bodies propped gainst Hadrian’s Wall her whole world falls part In such close kni.
Nting yet beautiful backdrop which comes to life in the telling Descriptively this is her best yet so Killer Physique (Savannah Reid Mystery, as wells the really uite twisted yet extremely emotive plot developing you ve got it ll happening in place of beauty where nothing so ugly should occurI love the psychological spects I was particularly drawn to Isla who grew up to make career out of trying to discover why some people can commit these horrific cts having seen the fallout with her own eyes she is sympathetic nd driven The crime element whodunnit is fascinatingly drawn driven very much by the characters Amish Homecoming and how they see things You may or may not see the end coming but to be honest that may be the pay off but the sheerddictive nature of The Killer on the Wall is found not in the solving of the mystery but in the events leading up to itAnother huge HUGELY excellent book from n uthor who is becoming one to watch in Crime writing circles I m loving each one than the last nd The Killer On The Wall is perhaps my favourite because it has such brilliantly Jewish German Revolution atmosphericmbience nd true page turning uality it is honestly hard to put down once

(A Lucy Stone Mystery, are several POV s in this bookmong them Sweet Southern Hearts (A Willow Hill Novel Book 3) are Isla her husband who survived the firstttack 20 years go nd her father who caught the killer But the one person I think I liked the best was Mina young cop that has been transferred from London to Briganton to get way from her overbearing family Now she faces nightmare with serial killer looseI read The Missing Hours by the same Daddy's Girl Series: A Taboo Erotic Collection author last yearnd I think this book is better This story was much interesting nd ll these different characters make this story engrossing to read The ending was perhaps not that surprising since there is just not many suspects to chose from ny However I found it fitting because even though one can know person well can even the best of us be blind when it comes to seeing things I want to thank the publisher for providing me with free copy through NetGalley for n honest review I loved The Missing Hours so much that I really jumped Dark Tides (Dark Tides at the chance to read Emma Kavanagh s new novel The Killer On The Wall Maybe my expectations were too highfter the previous one because in

yearsThe uthor makes lot of suggestions nd steered me into one direction for Left Fur Dead a suspect on the outside only to change directiongain in nother chapter I felt myself on carousel fter while Although I read this novel with lots of uestions on my mind too most of what was offered didn t really convince me s motive Loyalty and Lies (Chastity Falls, and I wasn t really buyingny it I didn t know who why or how but I trusted my own instinct nd definitely knew there was something wrong with the picture that was being proferred When ll was finally said By Way Of A Wager and done the ending was not entirely surprising for me simply because so many werelready suspected nd dismissed What I found bit strange was there wasn t much of motive for the ctual killer either nd I had high hopes ctually for When Kingdom Comes an explanation why these peoplend these people in particular were targetedI m fraid I have to dmit that on top of this I The Wayward Bride (Besotted Scots, also had bit of difficulty to fully connect with Isla nd Mina lthough from both of them I liked detective Mina most She s unrelentless in her perusal through boxes Such a Dance and in her investigation she doesn t
